Stacey had an incredibly calming demeanor and a warmth that's rare to find in people today. I love how she contextualized her discussions of neuroscience and behavior within her experiences as an educator and speech pathologist. I also appreciated her vulnerability in sharing how mindfulness has helped her navigate challenging personal circumstances (e.g., family health challenges).

I attended a 2-day SIY program through my employer. Having explored "mindfulness" concepts in the past, I was a little skeptical. Much to my surprise, the SIY training for leaders helped me tremendously. I learned how to practice mindfulness in a way that works for me personally - in bite size pieces. I loved that the program was very applicable to my role as a leader. The format kept me engaged the entire 2 days. There was a little content presentation followed by practice. I loved having the 4-week follow-up prompts to continue my learning journey plus having an accountability buddy that I speak with every week. My "go to" practices are the full body scan, mindful walking and 3-part breathing. Finally, the presenters were very relatable and fun to be with. I'd highly recommend SIY to others.
